<p>are you in-state or out-of-state? that'll make a big difference</p>


<p>I'm not sure about the other UCs, but I know that UCLA Biochemistry major applicants aren't worse off than other L&S in terms of admissions chances. Same with Chemistry and other Physical Science applicants.</p>

<p>UCLA: Match
UCB: Match
UCSD: Safety
UCSB: Safety
UCI: Safety</p>

<p>flopsy, so are you saying it wont matter if i apply with a decided major, or an undecided major?</p>

<p>bump, i interested in answer.</p>

<p>Yohan, a UCLA admissions representative came to my school today, so I can answer that one for you.</p>

<p>A decided major will not be crucial, nor will it even play a part in your admissions decision. However, there is one exception:</p>

<p>Obviously, students applying to the engineering majors are going to be evaluated by the S/E. </p>

<p>Otherwise, he said, it doesn't quite matter.</p>

<p>aright awesome, can you guys tell me my chances anyways? (match, safeties, reaches, etc.) thanks</p>
